We recommend being at the ATV tour at 9:45 am for the 10 o’clock tour. After leaving the city a bit before 8 am you can start your day off by taking a beautiful route on road 42, where you’ll find many of the most fascinating sights of the Reykjanes Peninsula. These include Kleifarvatn and Seltún geothermal area, as well as Strandarkirkja church. This will give you time for a few photos and relaxing views before getting your adrenaline pumping on the ATV’s.
The Black Beach ATV Tour takes you along the black sand beaches which the south of Iceland is most known for. You will be able to ride along the beach, enjoying the view of the North Atlantic ocean, and also ride a bit inland for a scenic view of the countryside. The ATV tour is about 1 hour and is sure to get your heart going for the rest of the day. After the ATV tour, we recommend hitting up one of the restaurants in the area which specializes in Lobster Soup and other Icelandic delicacies. Our top picks for the region are Hendur í Höfn, Við Fjöruborðið & Rauða Húsið. Once you have gathered energy after the ATV ride, you can head up to The Lava Tunnel for the 1 pm tour. The drive should only be a few minutes (15 minutes top) from wherever you end up grabbing lunch in the region.
